TOOELE COUNTY, Utah — Due to the recent heavy rain to fall on western parts of Utah, Speed Week on the Bonneville Salt Falts has been canceled.
After significant rain fell in the area Friday night into Saturday, the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA), who hosts the event, had kept close intention on the weather. Originally, only Sunday’s race was called off. By early Sunday afternoon, however, a decision was made to call off the entire event.
The flooding caused some items to be lost.
“We are doing our best to recover what we can find out on the lakebed. Missing items can be found in the registration area,” the SCTA said in a Facebook posting.
The event typically brings in hundreds of individuals from different parts of the world. For many, it requires years of planning and saving to attend Speed Week.
